The stones made me do it!

Chain chokers

Well, it is true. The stones made me do it. I was searching my bead cabinet for some misplaced seed beads, when I came across a bag of mixed odd stones. I had put it away not knowing what I would make of them. I can’t make a pair of earrings with one stone and, in the past, all my necklaces has been with many beads.

But now that I found it, I knew exactly what to do! Chain choker necklaces with single stones.

Chain chokers

This is the result, five chain chokers with five different stones. From left to right: white howlite, purple amethyst. green moss agate, clear quartz and brown agate.

The seed beads I was looking for? Still have not found them.

I hope to have the chokers in my shop soon!

Making layered chokers

Making more layered chokers

I enjoy beading, because it is like therapy. So at the moment I am making more layered chokers. The first one (purple) has five strands made and just need assembling. The second will be bronze and olive nuances. I just finished putting all the beads on the wire.

The earlier ones I made was only in a grey scale – black, white and grey.

I plan to do more of these beaded chokers, but when that will be only the future will tell. πŸ™‚

Remember to check out my shop here, and also the shops on Etsy and DaWanda are full of my jewelry!

Layering up!

New earring design

I have often made necklaces with layers, but my earrings are usually simpler. I thought it was a good idea to make some earrings with layers too and came up with a new design.

Two chains with beads, and to start with made them in five colours. Which is your favourite?

I hope to have them available in my shop soon!

Beads for chain chokers

It was ages ago, but I really like those chain chokers I made with pearlsΒ last year. At that time I didn’t know it would take me this long to get back to that idea. But it is time.

So here is a sneak peak. I took out some of my favourite beads and started making them into chain chokers. All they need is a chain and clasp – and they are ready!

Keep an eye out in the shop, and I hope to get them up there soon!

On my table

On my table right now is a beading project. Last year I sold a few of my multi stranded bib necklaces made with small seed beads, and I have decided to remake a few. The one in the photo I have just started, but I have a turquoise half made one also, and a white one planned (but not started).

When finished, it is my idea that they will look like, or maybe more be similar too because they never turn out the same twice, as these earlier sold necklaces.

But it will probably be another week or two, before I get them all done. πŸ˜›

Meanwhile, available items can always be found in my shop, on Etsy and on DaWanda.
